With the temperature dramatically dropping in the past week, I knew it was essential to pull on the biggest coat I owned when I went for a little walk last weekend. If it weren’t for my face feeling ice cold to the touch, I wouldn’t have known quite just how cold it really was.
Thankfully, there’s a little saying that goes ‘there is no bad weather, only bad clothing‘ and I have to say I agree…
Cuddled up in what feels like a cosy duvet, this Regatta Fearne II Jacket is a godsend for the chilly British Winter weather. Down filled, thicker than it first appears and almost to my knees on my 5ft 7″ frame, it’s an incredibly practical coat but one that still manages to maintain some sort of style at the same time with an oversized fur lined hood and quilted design.
I can’t even begin to explain just how warm this coat really is and how much it’s saved me from freezing and being incredibly miserable, especially at work where I spend half my time outside, no matter what the weather.
Add all that to the fact that I’ve received quite a few comments on how other people loved this Regatta number and it’s reasonable price tag at only £30, and I think the Fearne II Jacket is hardly going to leave my side this Winter.
Being Healthy & Happy
The thing is, I’m always cold and it’s not until recently that I’m truly beginning to realise why. Everything is beginning to make sense with my health in general and I’ve become a lot more conscious over the last few weeks about how important it is to be healthy and happy. Some changes are being made and it’s going to take a while but hopefully I’m at the beginning of a journey to feel a lot more like ‘me‘ again. It might sound a bit deep or silly, but for such a long time I’ve felt a bit lost. I’ve felt alive but not living, not really.
I won’t go too much into it in this post but let’s just say from now on I need to start looking after myself more and although I’m not really one for this new year new start thing, I think all that may just have to change in 2017.
